Requiescat in pace

Lord God,

You chose our brother Joseph to serve your people as a priest and to share the joys and burdens of their lives.

Look with mercy on him and give him the reward of his labors,

the fullness of life promised to those who preach your holy Gospel.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
